This was a fedora decision to reduce the number of kernels that 
they needed to maintain.  They found the overhead to support PAE 
was very low and it worked on almost all processors since PIII.  So 
now it is either i686-PAE or x86_64 kernels from fedora, and since 
PD isn't available for 64 bit yet, I'll use the PAE kernel.

If you have any problem with the PAE kernel you should write a 
bug report with fedora.
